Missing your fix of Jon, Daenerys, Sansa and co? Well, now you can forget all about that shitty ending and make one of your own, thanks to the amazing new immersive VR experience based on Game of Thrones.
HTC Vive has partnered exclusively with HBO to deliver Beyond the Wall – available to Viveport Infinity subscribers from May 31.
And it’s made all our dreams come true – giving gamers the chance to join….The Night’s Watch!
Created by Framestore in partnership with HBO, the game transports users to the northern border of The Seven Kingdoms to fight and defend The Wall. Players can test their sword-fighting skills against a terrifying undead polar bear and hoard of wights (not whites!).
“VR is the perfect pairing for Game of Thrones fans who can now step onto the battlefield of Beyond
the Wall as part of Viveport Infinity,” said Rikard Steiber, president of Viveport. “Beyond the Wall gives you the first-hand experience of joining the Night’s Watch and protecting the realms of men with your flaming sword from the army of the dead.”
Viveport Infinity gives players unlimited access and platform subscription service for virtual reality for a monthly fee. The Infinity-exclusive experience will be compatible for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
